This exhibit is the outcome of UMD Assistant Professor Terresa Hardaway’s assignment “The Movement Imprinted: Music of the Revolution,” in which Hardaway asks her students to create pieces based on a song about the African-American experience, and she specified that their design should emulate an African-American graphic designer. Along with the posters, the winning bid will also receive a designed booklet that details information about the song, musician, designer, and the student's progress.

As a band, Parliament brought funkiness to a whole new level, almost all the way to outer space. The city, completely covered with colorful, psychedelic chocolate, flows down just as the vibrations and energy that came off of Parliament and spread to its fans and the world around them. We are given only a sliver into what the city looks like, but from what would appear and what we know, the dripping psychedelic chocolate will spread all over the country, creating a movement of love, positivity, and funk. A band, fueled by positive energy and a celebration of individuality, would do its best to spread the psychedelic love as far as they possibly can.
